the lonesome west, again

White City station lives on in old editions of the map, if nowhere else - I walked along Sunshine Road today, and there really is no trace of it, as Wikipedia warned. I've got a childhood nostalgia for the western suburbs that's hard to shake. It reminds me of the old blue trains, which makes me think of the smell of brake fluid and rubber as they'd hurtle through the (brand new) city loop with the doors open, creating a deafening roar. Being young and impressionable, I'd worry about somehow falling out one of these open doorways, left to scrape my way out of a greasy and dusty tunnel on my own.
